The cube ornament worked in Seba designs Black work was completed. The designer is posting a design every week. Three designs have been posted so far on facebook group. Few people have been participating in this SAL. The designs are intricate and beautiful. The cube –

I started with the second design. The same square pattern needs to be worked six times to make a cube. This time it is not a cube ornament but a square ornament. The design needs to be worked twice. Saves time too. This is worked on 14 count Aida with anchor cotton skein and variegated fine silk thread. Hope this project is worked during the following week.

A few more kutch work borders were drawn in the last two evenings for kutch work border designs collection.

An idea of working Kashmiri embroidery [chain stitch] on crepe silk fabric is at the searching for the right design stage. Will be happy to start the embroidery on this project next week.

I caught a viral infection on Sunday and was quite sick and weak. With antibiotics and paracetamol feeling slightly better today. My husband was also affected by this stupid virus.
Now to see the progress made during this last week of this year.

The black work pattern by SEBA designs was worked on 18 count Aida cloth with single strand of Anchor skein. This was a Christmas present for a close friend. Pink stones and pearl beads were added as embellishments.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Some progress was made during this week on this black work cube ornament on 14 count Aida. Though a fan of Seba designs, this is the first time I am trying one of her patterns. Either this pattern is very intricate or I have difficulty working on it, this is taking quite a bit of time to work. I used Anchor variegated cotton skein.

The same design is started on 18 count Aida fabric also. This is for a square ornament. This is more difficult.

The earlier weeks randjes were completed. The blog which is running this challenge seems to be well set for 2016. The next year’s challenge is a long sampler including alphabets, which will be posted in parts every week.

Along with the quotes, we also made floral ornaments. These plastic balls and double edged tape were the base for the ornaments.

These white flower garlands [readymade fabric] for decoration and satin ribbons[blue, of course] for hanging them.

After sticking the double edged tape all over the plastic ball, the garlands were carefully rolled over the shape along with the satin ribbon for hanging. It was tricky!

I am not good at crafts, I get inspired to do something and start the project, the learning becomes part of the project! White glue was poured on a plastic paper and the floral ornaments were rolled over it[ I wore disposable gloves] messy business!

I saw a video and got the idea for this paper craft .This metallic paper was ideal to work this. The paper was cut earlier to make this hanging, the sticking part of the piece with glue stick by my nephew.

All these were hung with strings and lights around the function hall by my husband, brother, nephew [elder one] cousins. We forgot to take a decent picture and this is the only one available.

I don’t remember where I got the pattern for this ornament. I don’t have the details.I AM SORRY for not giving the person who had designed it the due credit.I won’t  be selling this piece,It’s for personal decoration only.

I loved cross stitching those hearts!

Yesterday I visited Sharon’s blog for the TAST2 challenge. It is diamond stitch.I have been trying to work this stitch.And have reached to a point where I feel,my diamond stitch will be a uniquely crooked one.IAM working really hard on getting each and every twist as different  as possible. Maybe Iam TALENTED! EarlierI wanted to try some variations, but now I can have so many variations in  single line!
